Scholarship Spotlight

Thanks to a number of benefactors, Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations has created and fostered opportunities for students to receive funding to participate in hands-on dynamic experiences and better serve our students in this current economic climate. The following funds support these efforts.

Professor Dick Beatty Endowed Fellowship
Bernard Goldstein and Coralie Farlee Student Support Fund

Professor Dick Beatty Endowed Fellowship

The Professor Dick Beatty Endowed Fellowship provides financial support to student(s) who will partake in an applied, human resource-related field experience either domestically or internationally. The Department of Human Resource Management will identify and place students. 
 
Professor Richard W. “Dick” Beatty, for whom this award is named after, is known around the world for his expertise in strategic human resource management. He has developed HR talent on every continent and has worked with many U.S. and non-U.S. firms.
 
As former executive director of the Global Executive Masters in Human Resource Leadership (GEMHRL) program at Rutgers, Professor Beatty has taken his eleven groups of high potential HR leaders through this transformative program which began in Brazil, followed by journeys to China, India, and the USA. In each of these venues, participants interacted with government officials, labor lawyers, experts on local culture and many senior HR Vice Presidents from global firms.
 
The program included senior human resource executives from major global firms from Finland, China, India, Germany, Spain, Italy, United Kingdom, Mexico, Peru, Australia, South Korea, Japan, Sweden, France, Austria, Ukraine, and Romania. Professor Beatty has helped to reshape the field of Human Resource Management to focus on the strategic role of talent as a major source of a firm’s competitive advantage. Professor Beatty’s research and writing has been critical in applying behavioral science to human resource management and creating the tools critical to advancing HR programs.

Bernard Goldstein and Coralie Farlee Student Support Fund

The Bernard Goldstein and Coralie Farlee Student Support Fund furthers recipient’s understanding of the process and practice of unionization in the United States. Interest areas include but are not limited to: employment law, conflict resolution, negotiation, collective bargaining, grievance processes, arbitration, minorities, women, immigration issues and work, work and social change, public sector vs. corporate ownership, and the role of media regarding union activities and status.
 
In the 2014-2015 academic year, the Goldstein and Farlee Support Fund was used to sponsor an internship in the Washington, D.C. area in collaboration with the Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations' Center of Innovation in Worker Organization. This fund provided a student with the opportunity to engage in hands-on learning.
